The plan was for Kaleyen and Khæli to hit 80 this weekend. However, a series of technical and medical circumstances have made game-play nearly impossible. Friday, thanks to the wonders of Comcast, AT&T, and/or Blizzard (none of whom will actually take responsibility for the problem), I was disconnected from the game roughly every 15 minutes. And while yesterday’s connection was decent, I logged in this morning to over 1000 ms latency, making the game pretty much unplayable. So poor Khæli sits about 10% away from level 80, while I refresh the tech support forums at worldofwarcraft.com and comcast.com.
I just don’t want to be like the poor guy who posted a thread that he’d disconnected only to log back in and discover he’d dinged 80 while offline.
